Assessing the potential for Environmental Sensitivity Index mapping in the Arctic using Synthetic Aperture Radar
Principal Investigator: Duffe, Jason A
Licenced Year(s): 2012 2011 2010
Summary: The objectives of this research project are to: (1) fly oblique helicopter videography along the Beaufort Sea shoreline from the Alaska/Yukon border to the Northwest Territories/Nunavut border; (2) using conventional methods, interpret helicopter videography and create an Environmental Sensitivity Index map. This will consist of a vector shapefile of shoreline types; and (3) using satellite rad...


Coastal Hazards, Relative Sea-level Change, and Climate Impacts on Northern Coasts and Seaways
Principal Investigator: Forbes, Donald L
Licenced Year(s): 2006 2005 2004 2003 2002 2001
Summary: The western Canadian Arctic coast is one of the most rapidly changing coastlines in the world and among the most vulnerable to climate change. The causes of this vulnerability have been studied over the past decade. This project involves monitoring coast...


Coastal Impacts of Climate Change
Principal Investigator: Solomon, Steve
Licenced Year(s): 2000 1999 1997 1996 1995 1994 1993 1992
Summary: The primary objectives of the project are to map the coastline of the Canadian Beaufort Sea in terms of its sensitivity to coastal erosion and monitor changes in the coastline, and to collect information on the morphology of the coast and the sediments which compose it for use in developing and calibrating predictive models of coastal change. In order to achieve these objectives previously proven ...
